President & Managing Director at GLOSSYBOX USA
BCM: If you could describe motherhood in one word, what would it be?
BCM: What’s one moment in your motherhood journey that has made you proud?
BF: I felt so proud and touched when my son Luke told his teacher that he would want to become me when he grows up.
BCM: What is one piece of advice you want to pass along to your children?
BF: Throw kindness around like confetti!
BCM: Congratulations on the success of GLOSSYBOX! What is the inspiration behind the products that go in the box each month?
BF: Thank you very much. We really put a lot of effort in composing the perfect mix of beauty discoveries: a combination of iconic products and well-known brands.
BCM: What is one item of makeup or skincare item that moms should always have on hand?
BF: I absolutely love lip and cheek tints as well as Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream – both are multi-purpose products that literally saved my life many times and I couldn’t live without them.
BCM: What is one piece of advice you would pass along to other moms?
BF: What can go wrong will go wrong. Don’t be too protective of your kids – trust is key!
BCM: How do you tackle work/life balance?
BF: I don’t believe that work and life are two separate spheres in women’s lives. Work is a major part of my life, and as long as I love what I am doing, everything is in balance.
BCM: What is your favorite thing to do to relax and unwind?
BF: I have to admit: I absolutely love to dance. So when I have to unwind and relax, I turn the music on and dance it off!
BCM: What was the last book you read?
BF: “We need to talk about Kevin”, a novel by Lionel Shriver. It is both fascinating and captivating.
BCM: If you could hand off one chore to someone else each day, what would it be?
BF: As much as I love preparing dinner for my family, I can’t stand cleaning up the mess in the kitchen afterwards. If I could, I would never clean the kitchen again.
BCM: What is the best white lie that you’ve told your child?
BF: I used to tell my children that my Avène Thermal Water Spray heels everything from a cut to heartache. When they were younger, they truly believed in the superpowers of this marvelous spray (they probably still do)!
